    damn. assuming the iTouch has the same processor, then my iTouch is more powerful than my laptop that I'm using right now. My laptop running on an 333MHz Intel. Man do I need a new laptop.

    Agreed; I want to see Ubuntu Mobile on the iPhone as well.
    Well, I want to see any non-Apple OS on it... This is a big step.

    Android would be kind of cool as well, I guess. Ubuntu Mobile is designed for touch screens though, so it would probably be more fun

    UME would have to be entirely ported unfortunately. ARM has never been supported (excluding Ubuntu Embedded). As long as something is ported, we could possibly have an iPhone with the iPhone OSX, Linux Flavor, and Android. If android does manage to get on the iPhone, it will be a really nice stepping stone for android and show other companies how powerful it may or may not be when it has a community surrounding it.

    Beautiful. Considering the technology now, almost anything is possible. From my standpoint, it is truly amazing seeing an OS ported to the iPhone, even though it has not even been out for a year. Just imagine how customizable it will be two years from now. Kudos to the developers.

    what I'd really like to see come out of this project is a completely custom firmware, I hope this new tool will make that possible

    The beauty Nix is that it can be ported and compiled for other platforms easier then many other things. All it takes is the ability to put it on the iPhone and trust me, it will be ported.

    With iBoot, the ability is (almost) there. Give it a few months and I'm sure we're going to see work being done for the ARM. (Well people are already working on it as we speak but not too many AFAIK)

    With UME, sky literally is the limit....from integrated flash to productivity software to....whatever.

    sure it can be ported. its just a matter of doing it since it was made for x86 and a lot would have to be changed. cmw is working on a linux already apart from the bootloader. he has a lot of experience with creating linux flavors so we should start hearing a lot in the coming months/weeks .
